The Meaning of Christmas

Let the trumpets sound! Unto us this day our Saviour is born.
Hark, the Herald Angels Sing.

Thinking of all who are dear and remaining in contact. I will be praying for the gift of Love, for the whole world.

All the modern mechanisms can bring us closer...

Christmas wishes for me are mainly to keep in touch with dear friends and Family.

Send a letter and hope to hear back soon : )

Every day could be like Christmas if we never forget the reason for the Season. The birth of our Saviour.

Santa represents giving from the heart, our Love and ourselves.

Love to Go Around

The dividing of attention and the size of my heart are not directly linked. Sometimes I get the feeling that some people feel there is only enough love to fill the heart full and then it remains static. I like to think of my heart as being able to grow with every new friend and to welcome in and keep all who are dear.
My children have the top spot and they know it, but they want to be assured, and sometimes they feel threatened when they realize I turn my attention elsewhere. It's not that they don't want me happy, it's that they feel left out, and realize they are not completely controlling the environment.
I have always tried to be honest and forgiving and above all, understanding in all relationships. In my walk I have tried to find the balance between responsibility and necessity and personal desire. I would never do anything to damage anybody else in any way, no matter what happened in the past. I would feel awful if I ever caused another parental relationship with their children any hardship or difficulties. I know well from my own situation and I believe the Golden Rule.
As important as a parent child relationship is for the growth of the child it is also important for the children to have happy parents and to understand that their parents have a life that is independent from the kids, also. Our children will eventually grow up and have a life of their own, and then they will hope we have one too.

Christmas Past

Christmas Past and Christmas Future will never compare to Christmas Present.

I remember dreaming during the countdown to Christmas Day as a kid and how it seemed it would never come.

It's funny how, even as an adult I continued to put much anticipation into hopes and promises out in the future. Because, if my happiness depends on another person or another situation, disappointment is inevitable. To live for the day is the dream,
and the reality.

When One Door Closes Two more Open?

I thank God every day for everything, and today he may have set me free.

If It Snowed Today?

If it snows in the Sacramento Valley today, is that Global Warming, or just climate change?
Isn't it ironic how sometimes things happen in the world at large and get illustrated on the local level, too?
I would love to see a little snowfall today, here. With so many liberals in the State wouldn't that be great if on the day of their big event in Copenhagen they got to have snow for the first time in their big cities here? It's such a fitting kick off to the big "Climate" event.
